Salomon: Salomon was found­ed in 1947 in the heart of the French Alps, the birth­place of mod­ern alpin­ism. Dri­ven by pas­sion for ski­ing and design inno­va­tion, Fran­cois Salomon and his son George designed and per­fect­ed many of the first mod­ern ski bind­ings. The com­pa­ny has since earned a rep­u­ta­tion for excel­lence in design­ing goods for oth­er out­door activ­i­ties, expand­ing its line to include every­thing from trail run­ning footwear to tech­ni­cal appar­el and socks. Today at The Clymb, we’re excit­ed to be offer­ing Salomon footwear and tech­ni­cal appar­el for mem­ber-exclu­sive pricing.

Fuel­Belt: When dri­ving into the back­coun­try, it’s a good idea to bring some extra fuel. The same holds true with dis­tance run­ning. Fuel­Belt designs light­weight pock­et­ed waist straps for dis­tance run­ners want­i­ng an acces­si­ble place to store water bot­tles, ener­gy gels and what­ev­er else pow­ers them to push past their lim­its. Top off with Men’s and Wom­en’s Fuel­Belt run­ning acces­sories, on sale today at The Clymb for mem­ber-exclu­sive pricing.

Gravis: Remove it from the box, slip it on and head to the beach or to the can­ti­na because casu­al is com­fort­able with Gravis footwear and appar­el. Need to get some work done while you relax? The light­weight Gravis Hood back­pack sports a lap­top sleeve and enough room for a six-pack and what­ev­er else you need to get the job done. Act now and receive mem­ber-exclu­sive pric­ing on Gravis footwear, tees, and Hood backpacks.

Gog­gles: There’s a say­ing as old as ski­ing itself, the mes­sage of which rings as true today as it did thou­sands of years ago when gog­gles were no more than a pair of pol­ished bones strung to the head by sinew: “Those who refuse to wear eye pro­tec­tion on the moun­tain won’t have a sweet pair of rac­coon eyes to show off the next day at work.” Snow gog­gle tech­nol­o­gy may have matured faster than the peo­ple who use it but that does­n’t mean you should still be hold­ing on to your Stone Age gear. Evolve with gog­gles from Spy, Optic Nerve, Elec­tric, and more, on sale today at The Clymb for mem­ber-exclu­sive pricing.

PLUS… There’s still time to save on Uclear, KAVU, COAL, Cross, Timex, Loopt­works, Teva, & Nils.

And just for fun…

Bone in the Snow: Did you know? Snow gog­gles weren’t always rain­bow-tint­ed works of mod­ern art. Invent­ed by the Inu­it peo­ple of the Arc­tic as a way to pre­vent snow blind­ness, tra­di­tion­al snow gog­gles were orig­i­nal­ly made from chunks of bone or ivory. The wear­er would shave the bone to fit, cut some slits to let in light, rub the insides down with soot, and then strap the con­trap­tion to his or her head using sinew. Awe­some­ly, DC Comics supervil­lain Cap­tain Cold wears tra­di­tion­al-style snow gog­gles to pre­vent going blind from the glare cre­at­ed by the ice beams he blasts from his cold guns (which are gen­er­al­ly aimed at Flash). In com­ic books at least, old tech­nolo­gies are always cut­ting edge. KRACKOW!
